Twelve Guernsey beaches provide recycling bins for cans and bottles

July 1st, 2010 by Richard Lord

The Public Services Department has teamed up with the Environment Department to place recycling bins for tin and aluminium cans, and plastic bottles ( plastic No. 1 and No. 2 only) at twelve Guernsey beaches so that these recyclable materials don’t have to be taken home for recycling anymore.

Recycling bins have been provided at Portelet, L’Eree, Vazon Bay, Port Soif, Ladies Bay, Pembroke, L’Ancresse, Moulin Huet and Jerbourg.

The Public Services Department stresses that it is important to place the right recyclable items in the correct bin.  If this is not done the load of recyclable material may not be suitable for recycling and may have to be diverted to landfill.

    This is a fantastic start, albeit rather late in the day! I would like to see this in every public car park and public building. We need the whole community seeing that recycling is something that we do 100% of the time and not just when the mood takes us!

    I do hope that people will use them properly and not just bung their whole bag of rubbish in.

Have your say
